Sun, Oct 10, 2021, 09:36 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Oct 10, Colombo: Thirukumaran Nadesan, the husband of former minister Nirupama Rajapaksa, has been summoned to appear before the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) again on Friday, 15th October to give a statement regarding the controversial Pandora Papers incident.

Thirukumaran Nadesan, appeared before the Bribery Commission last Friday (08), but he was asked to return to the Commission on the 15th again to give evidence since his statement was incomplete although the Commission recorded his statement for about three hours.

He was summoned to appear before the Commission following a request by the President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption to submit a report within a month after conducting a special inquiry into Sri Lankans exposed in the Pandora Papers.

The leaked Pandora Papers reportedly show that Nirupama Rajapaksa and her husband, Nadesan, were establishing shell companies and trusts in offshore jurisdictions.
